Excellent service with driver Vimukhti for 4 days, reasonable price, very comfortable room. Out of town was advantage for me. I also got train tickets arranged for Ella and handed over by Mr. Linton. They prepared the program and it was fine tuned to my interests.

We stayed in the Blue Haven Guesthouse in Kandy for two nights, which was modest but great if you don't fancy a big hotel. The food was good, and the room big and clean. There are almost no good restaurants or bars in Kandy, therefore choose your guest house or hotel wisely, as most tourists eat where they stay. Ask...
